I'm totaly new to the guruplug enviroment.
I'm tring to install e usb wireless key that will work like client. The internal wifi interface will work like a AP and so i would extend my wifi coverage!!!
There is a problem: I'm not able to install any one of my wireless key!!I tried with 3 different key with 3 different chipset one rt73 one rt3070 and one zydas zd1211! The problem is that I can't compile the driver! My kernel is 2.6.33.3flipflip. I receive many errors.

So i tried to install  the firmware-ralink package for the rt73 and rt3070 and for zydas the zd1211-firmware but when I do lunch modprobe I can't find the package.

Where am I wrong?Huh

Please some one can help me.

This thing is going to drive me crazy!!!
Sorry for my bad english
Please help me!!I'm desperate!!!

Code:
......................................etc........................................                                                                                                         ember named āprivā
make[2]: *** [/media/usb0/zd1211/trunk/src/zd1205.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [_module_/media/usb0/zd1211/trunk] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.33.3flipflip'
make: *** [all] Error 2


So move to rt73  
I tried install
Code:
aptitude install firmware-ralink
modprobe rt73usb
same result
Code:
FATAL: Module rt73usb not found.

So I downloaded this http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/rt73-cvs-daily.tar.gz
 Unzipped and tried to make it but this is the result
Code:
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.33.3flipflip'
  Building modules, stage 2.
  MODPOST 0 modules
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.33.3flipflip'
rt73.ko failed to build!
make: *** [module] Error 1

Same problems for rt2870...

Any idea...please...
I don't know what can I do...

Hi there,

I'm having similar problems with my plug and a few different USB cards I have tried.

The one that I'm trying at the moment is the TP-LINK TL-WN321G. It shows up in lsusb as:
Bus 001 Device 019: ID 148f:2573 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2501USB Wireless Adapter

I have followed the instructions on http://wiki.debian.org/WiFi/rt73#rt73usb for installing the rt73usb driver but it seems no love.

I, like you, am unable to see the installed ko file in /lib/modules/2.6.31.8/kernel/drivers/net/wireless so I suspect that I may also have an installation problem.

Modprobe also throws back:  FATAL: Module rt73usb not found.

Did you have any luck solving your problem?  Thanks.
